Hello! Is anyone good with technology? Im trying to teach online math and I’d like it to look professional. I’m not sure which features would make it look professional but some producers are able to insert videos, text, have interesting backgrounds, profesisonal white boards/tools, etc. Anyone know of any resources I could use to teach on-line math?

I am teaching Spanish online. I joined a fb page for Spanish teachers which is quite helpful. Have you tried Nearpod? My friend uses that, she teaches math. I will be using it for my Spanish lessons too.

Hey! I tutor online via Zoom & Whizzimo but that’s for reading. I like it though. Zoom is free for one on one with no time limit and I can share my own PDFs etc but again, that’s for reading and spelling purposes. Whizzimo is fee based but that platform is provided through my employer. A parent of one of my students is a math tutor. I’m not sure which platform she uses, but she purchased a graphics tablet & pen for the necessary visual of teaching math, and she LOVES it. She said that it made a huge difference.

Anyone heard of Duolingo??
I speak Spanish after taking classes in High School and College and we also had a foreign exchange student from Mexico who didn’t speak any English at all and therefore I had the opportunity to learn Spanish.
I wanted my grandkids to learn so I shared it with my daughter-in-law (Met on SGS too!).
I use it daily and find it really fun!

We used Duolingo before our trip to Ireland. Pronunciation-wise… I butchered it but it was very helpful for reading Irish signs etc. in northwest Ireland where Irish is more common.

Duolingo is solid. I’m using it to work on my French to prepare for my language exams for my PhD program. I’ve never taken a formal French class, but my French is relatively decent, in part because of Duolingo.

If you want to do synchronic classes I highly recommend Zoom or Google Meet, you can go to youtube to learn how to. You can video call (life facetime) with your students, share your screen, videos, documents, etc. Zoom has a whiteboard and Google Meet has lots of addons. Are you teaching at a school or college or just tutoring?

Our preschool is teaching virtually with Google Classroom. We can upload videos, documents, and pictures. Like AML said, Zoom or Google Meet is good for virtual face to face teaching. The positive of using pre-recorded videos where you post a video that you have made is that the students can go back and watch it as many times as they need to.
I found these websites that might help you in your online math teaching:
I hope this helps! 🙂

Thanks for all the help! I definitely appreciate it.
You know how producers are able to easily incorporate different screens, do smoothe transitions, incorporate text, add different kinds of videos, add music, etc. I guess what I’m looking for is to be able to do different things within my video. I don’t know what this is called. A video editor? Also looking for math white boards that will be enable me to teach profesisonally.

Hello! I don’t know if this is helpful, but I’ve heard good things about Splice (easy to use and on your phone)!
